In the pristine wilderness of Arnhem Land, time slows down. Celebrate the beauty of the Australian outback and take the opportunity to connect with yourself and with the natural habitat through Davidson’s Arnhemland Safaris.
This wilderness experience and eco lodge is located at Mount Borradaile and is a registered Aboriginal sacred site on 700 square kilometres of remote landscape. This is a land of rugged ranges fringed by idyllic billabongs, flood plains, paper bark swamps and monsoonal rainforests – a breathtakingly beautiful wilderness.
Mount Borradaile is still owned and managed by its traditional custodians, the Amurdak people, whose inhabitation of the area dates back 50,000 years. Visitors of all ages have the opportunity to access this very special, protected and highly restricted region (via the honorary custodian status conferred to Max Davidson and his staff by the traditional landowners), where today the story of the Amurdak people’s ancestry is evident in the many tools, ceremonial grounds and rock art paintings.
Davidson’s Arnhemland Safaris is one of the few NT businesses that remains open during the wet season. It provides high-level tours and activities, and there are no itineraries or busy time schedules to adhere to – everything happens spontaneously.
On offer is a range of activities to suit many different preferences. Immerse yourself in the land and culture through a number of tours. Experience the Billabong Cruise to see the sun set over the floodplains; spend a relaxed afternoon on the billabong observing the wildlife, including crocodiles, on the Wetlands Exploration; and journey into the sandstone escarpments formed thousands of millions of years ago on the Mount Borradaile excursion.
Also available are a variety of wilderness activities including bird watching, rock gallery tours, catacomb explorations, rainforest journeys, bush tucker and medicine lessons, fishing, four-wheel drive outings, and rare and unique species discovery trips.
